    Nintendo Warns It Won't Make More Retro NES and SNES Consoles

    Honestly, Nintendo NEEDED to kill these to protect their IPs. They were easily hacked and simple to add any game from the platforms onto. I bought both happily, and immediately modded them to have huge game libraries on tiny consoles. Same thing with the PS Classic. I love the idea, but until...

    Amazon Announces Record-Breaking Global Holiday Shopping Weekend

    Seems like those boycotts didn't do a thing. I love shopping via Amazon, but they really need some competition. They are the Wal-Mart of online shopping.

    Microsoft Announces xCloud Game Streaming Service

    I don't think this will be a main release, because they will leave a ton of money on the table for those with internet connections that are too slow or don't have the bandwidth for this. I have a DSL connection, and downloading games is the only real option. I'm doing good to be able to stream...

    Take-Two CEO: Game Streaming’s Latency Problems Will Be Over in a Few Years

    Bandwidth isn't the only issue. Wide swaths of the United States have no access to true broadband, heck many areas top out at 4G service, and many don't even have that.

    An Analysis of the Take-Two Interactive Lawsuit Against a GTA V Cheat Creator

    This has already been covered in a court of law. Nintendo tried to claim that the Game Genie also created a derivative work, and lost the case. Granted, the reason why they lost was because Game Genie just intercepted code sent to the NES, not creating a new work but just modifying the...

    SpaceX Will Fly 2 Private Passengers Around the Moon

    Diablo III Eternal Collection Is Coming to the Nintendo Switch

    I'm actually excited for this one. I love the PC version, but sometimes can't play it due to being somewhere with no internet access. Switch version fixes that.

    Speedier Broadband Standards? Pai’s FCC Says 25Mbps Is Fast Enough

    Ping ms 77 Download Mbps 2.62 Upload Mbps 0.67 Sure, go ahead and raise it. It's not like we can even hit the current target anyway, lets shoot for the moon. We have reached the point where my cell phone, with 4G LTE, is officially faster than my home DSL line. And where I live, DSL is all...

    Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Being Made as an Action Game, according to New Job Listing

    Hard pass. It's NOT a remake at this point, especially if its an entirely different genre. Want sales? Give us the same gameplay and battle system with modern graphics, than throw in a few new dungeons and some new items, armor, weapons, and materia. Done.

    Nintendo Asks GitHub to Shut Down Game Boy Emulator

    UK Promotion: Free Kingston SSD with Purchase of Select NVIDIA GTX 1050, 1060 GPUs

    If that comes to the US, I might be interested in a 1050 with a 240 gig SSD, replacing my 120 gig SSD and 750 TI in my current system. Yea, I'm a bit out of date.

    Nintendo Asks GitHub to Shut Down Game Boy Emulator

    They aren't going after the emulator, they are going after the ROMs being hosted. The emulator itself is fine, and as long as it only was hosting public domain ROMS, or allowed users to upload their own, they would be fine. It's the copyrighted content that is the problem, and they are in the...

    “Amazon Should Replace Local Libraries to Save Taxpayers Money”

    If amazon were to have a free ebook rental program, thats fine. As of right now, they have a ten dollar a month ebook rental program that doesn't have a lot of major releases on it. Meanwhile, your local library typically either has the major releases, or will take requests to get those...

    Walmart Patents Audio Surveillance Technology to Record Customers and Employees

    "For example, the sensors would pick up on how many items are scanned" Umm, that's already done via the register? Why do we need an audio pickup for this? "how many bags are used" Why do they care how many bags are used? They are dirt cheap where I work, and we don't keep track of our bags...

    District 9 Director to Helm new RoboCop Movie

    I guess I am one of the weird guys that liked the 2014 movie. No, it wasn't a hyper gore, balls to the wall action flick in 80's style, but on its own it was a good film, and one of the few Robocop movies that could actually be a family title. That being said, I absolutely loved the first two...

    Kim Dotcom to Vacation in the US Maybe

    Valve Working on Something “Better than Steam Spy”

    Honestly, this seems like dirty play by Valve. Killing an API used by a major site, than developing their own version. Valve could have either worked with the site or bought them out entirely instead of cutting them off just to make their own version. Yea, the devs behind Steam Spy are cool...

    NVIDIA Swamped with Extra Inventory

    Still just hoping the 1180 releases in July, there's a price drop on the 10xx series, and I will be able to buy a 1050 ti at MSRP. Barring that, hoping maybe I can pick up a 1050 "refresh" version that has the 3 gigs of RAM onboard, since I only own a 1080p monitor hoping that would be enough...

    Apple Depreciates OpenGL and OpenCL in MacOS

    28 - Core Intel Demo Questioned on Cooling

    Intel is knee jerking, and will be for at least another year. AMD was smart and took their time to develop a chip that would compete after the disaster that Bulldozer was. Intel should step back and push their R & D teams to develop something competitive in a 3 to 5 year timeframe instead of...

    Steam Controller has Hidden Bluetooth LE Support

    Honestly, I really like the Steam Controller. There needs to be some changes, but the dual touchpads are great for a lot of FPS games and for RTS games that normally require a mouse. The biggest downside is that there is no D-pad, which hurts for fighting games, but it does have some nice...
